Detailed actions of privileged users is critical in today's business environment of IT outsourcing, off-shoring and supplementing IT staff with contractors. Regulations require documenting what users actually do with the privileges and rights granted to them and how their actions impact the IT environment.
Traditional approaches, such as log files, cannot fully meet these requirements. For a full accounting of what specific actions were taken on a specific system, at a specific time, by a specific user, there is no substitute for a high-fidelity recording of individual user sessions.
Organizations need to ensure that every privileged session can be audited across their extended enterprise.
